voted to repeal obama care 46 times! but they have stopped doing that now. since the shutdown, no more repeal obama care votes. repealing obama care now would mean they would be taking insurance from hundreds of thousands of americans. when they come back in january, it will be hundreds of thousands more americans who not just don't have just the promise of health insurance, but who are actually experiencing health insurance coverage, many of them for the first time in their lives. voting to repeal obama care was an expression of pure ideological exuberance for the first two or three or four dozen times that they took that vote, but now that people are getting covered, it's not that kind of vote anymore, and so, they're not taking that vote anymore. and so, now, what are they going to do with their time? six whole days to fill for the month of december. there's an interesting question when they've got in a way a small amount of time left between now and the end of the year, but six days for them. what are they going to fill it up with? they are on track to be a truly historic congress,

and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa in the coming days for the funeral, this will be an important event not only for president obama but for the united states. >> yes, and again, wolf, mandela has not been himself for a number of years. i think it was understandable he wasn't able to meet with the president. mandela say man of such great pride. the last few years when his memory was failing him, he felt awkward, seeing people, but i do think it's a great opportunity for president obama, president obama has had an important and deep focus on africa, the young african leaders initiative that he started as something that he cares a great deal about, so i think it will be an important moment when he does go over there for the funeral. >> you and i were in capetown, sou

time, americans -- the problem with trying to repeal obama care beforehand was it was theoretical. i knew for, you know, forever that millions of americans were going to lose their health care and there'd be millions more. but it was theory. now americans are feeling the real disaster that the health care law is where we've got millions of americans losing the health care, losing access to the doctors and treatments that are keeping you alive. and that's going to have a negative impact on democrats trying to run for senate. let's face it. anybody that voted for that bill. anybody that mouthed those same words, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, and there are plenty of senate democrats, house democrats that told that exact same untruth. let's put it that way. >> senator, assuming that the affordable care act does create some difficulties for democrats, particularly those seeking office, what should you -- what should republican party do to kind of advance its own cause between now and 2014 elections? >> well, i heard you earlier, it's -- it's difficult to repeal obama
we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the internet. >> president obama supports a $10.10 on minimum wage. certainly never mind $7.25. any sort of rates for their workers would end up getting passed down to the consumer in the way of higher prices for food. there are no hard numbers on this, but a burger would go anywhere from $3 to $3.50. that's the big debate. how big of a deal is that if the price of a burger goes up 50 cents? a lot of labor experts say it's not that big of a deal because a lot of these fast food workers use about $7 billion in social services a year. if they need less in those social services, you'll pay less into those social services, basically raising the bottom raises the whole. the protests are scheduled to start around 11:30. we'll see how it goes. >> katie, thanks so much. our katie tur. >>> dominick has a special retail story. >> let's check out what's happening with francesco's. you can see there right now, certainly not a good story for those ipo investors. back over to you. >> thanks a lot. i want to turn our attention back
. if you still don't like obama care and you know you don't, even though it is built on market-based ideas of choice and competition, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you are against. >> nbc news senior editor mark murray is here with today's first read. mark, you went back and dug through the records and you went through how many bills were able to go through congress and especially when there was divided government and you found interesting stuff. this is historically awful. >> we are living in unprecedented times and you go back to the other times in which ronald reagan was in the white house and he had a republican senate and house democrats led by tip o'neill. they produce bills and laws in the 400s and 500s and 600s and when newt gingrich was battling with bill clinton, that was in the 300s. right now in the 113th congress, we have a year to go and they finished 56 pieces of legislation that has become law. the 112th congress was then a low of 283. we are living in unprecedented times. you have a blame game of who is responsible for this. t
americans have been killed, 50,000 plus injured, we were wrong. had the wrong target. he was saying we were wrong. president barack obama said we were wrong. the fact is we were wrong. >> what did mandela think about the united states? >> had high hopes for america and had high regard for america. one of the first places he came when he was freed was america, because the fact is demonstrations here, since led by randall robertson and eleanor holmes norton and maxine waters, for a year we demonstrated every day, going to jail to protest. the u.s. congress declared sanctions on south africa and apartheid. i met with mrs. thatcher, britain would not go that far. so he knew the big lever to change the course was america. he came and expressed an appreciation in tours over and over again. he had high regard and high hopes for america. >> young people both here and in south africa, sadly, will know of mandela only from history books. what is it your wish that they be told about him? >> well, he was a persecuted political prisoner, he was tough, he tried nonviolent demonstration. that met with mas
